Chapter Summary

Caution is exercised in resorting to a different Hebrew Vorlage for the origin of Psalter of the Peshitta (P-Ps). In view of this, the author have wanted to place this chapter after the ones devoted to translation technique and particular interpretations, which are the factors that explain most of the differences between P-Ps and Masoretic texts (MT). In this chapter only the deviations of P-Ps with relation to MT that do not coincide with Septuagint (LXX) and/or Targum (Tg) is studied. These will be Syriac readings whose hypothetical Vorlage is supported by variants of the Masoretic tradition or by MSS of other Hebrew traditions (basically the Qumran MSS) or sometimes readings that P-Ps upholds with the support of "minor" versions or alone. The chapter insists on caution with what should be called the hypothesis of a different Vorlage.

Keywords: Hebrew Vorlage; Masoretic texts (MT); Psalter of the Peshitta (P-Ps); Qumran MSS; Septuagint (LXX); Targum (Tg)
